If you like the Dual shock just get a logitech gamepad, the F510 is what I use and I think it was 29 bones. There's one cheaper and one more expensive and then a wireless one, but they all look similar to and feel kinda like a DS3. You can also buy MadKatz or whatever 360 style controllers... all of which work without additional drivers or dongles like the console controllers require.
